NASCAR Nationwide Series - Drive for the Cure 300
October 10, 2014 - Charlotte Motor Speedway
James Buescher, No. 99
With only four races remaining in the 2014 season, the RAB Racing No. 99 Rheem/Microsoft team head home to Charlotte for a Friday night showdown. James Buescher and the team are looking to secure a top-10 finish to close out the enduring 18-week stretch before having two weeks off. Statistically Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS) is one of Buescher's better tracks on the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) schedule. In the five previous NNS starts at CMS, the Texas native has two top-10s and four top-15's equaling out to a just over a 10th-place average finish.
Charlotte is one my favorite mile-and-a-half tracks to go to. It's becoming more and more challenging. The cool thing is you can move around and run top, bottom, middle -- wherever you need to in order to get your handling right and run. Another great thing about Charlotte, it's a home race for most of the teams so all the crew can bring out their families and friends. Not for me however, but it's a local race for everybody else and it's cool letting them get to see what they do every week. The last couple of weeks my RAB Racing/Rheem team has shown some speed, we just need to capitalize on it and come out with a solid finish heading into the off-weekends giving us momentum to finish out the year. I think we're definitely capable of sneaking up there and getting top-10 or even a top-five. - James Buescher
